There is no escape from a dual reality in the same way that we cannot escape the place between inhaling and exhaling. These fundamental opposing forces are necessary in order for anything to move, operate or work. In other words, “from” can only go “to” and we cannot disconnect the black cable from our car battery because we only want positive energy flowing into the car. The Universe does not work this way and neither does the car. The rule is, “We cannot have one without the other.” We cannot have day without night, left without right or outer world without an inner world.
The term opposing forces is the basis of the conflict perspective. Reflective forces would be much more accurate. It has been mistakenly said, “Every action has an opposite reaction.” If true, this would mean every good act produces a bad response. The correct way is, “Every action has an equal reaction/response coming from the opposite direction.”
Because of the rule “as ye sow, so shall ye reap” means that we get to choose the quality of experience that we have. We determine our response to anything that happens and how we respond will reveal our level of mature awareness or if we are being sucked into the vortex of the fundamental conflict.
The fundamental conflict is visible whenever we don’t forgive others and ourselves. The fundamental conflict comes from a refusal to accept the truth as it is always being revealed. Most of us say we want the truth and will then get angry at the truth if it does not happen as desired. Adversity exists to makes us stronger. Our burdens exist not to burden us but to build us up as we break out of the eggshell restrictions of a limited perspective and finally wake up. At the moment we realize that life is an innocent mirror reflecting our attitude, perception and belief is when we are awakened into a new paradigm, a new attitude and a new reality. It will seem like the world has become better but the world has not changed; it’s only that you have become stronger.
